Upgrade from VirtualBox 2.1.0 to 2.1.2 vboxdrv issue

Hey everybody, I've already posted on the Vbox forums, but I want to
post here to diversify. Here's the situation:

OpenSuse 11.1 host. Vbox 2.1.0 was installed from binary. Upgraded to
2.1.2 earlier today (tried several times using rpm command-line and
Yast). Yast doesn't report errors, but rpm on cli does. Error on install
is "Stopping VirtualBox kernel module failed (Cannot unload module

Dmesg reveals:
vboxnetflt: no symbol version for SUPDrvLinuxIDC
vboxnetflt: Unknown symbol SUPDrvLinuxIDC

VirtualBox boots, but if I attempt to start a VM I get the following

The VirtualBox support driver which is running is from a different
version of VirtualBox. You can correct this by stopping all running
instances of VirtualBox and reinstalling the software.

Result Code:
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
IConsole {e3c6d4a1-a935-47ca-b16d-f9e9c496e53e}

I have a feeling it's something fairly simple (deleting links or
something) and re-running /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup, but I'm new to
OpenSuse and its software managers. Any help would be greatly

Figured it out. Looks like a couple of others were running into this
issue so upgraders beware.

I uninstalled everything to be safe. Rebuilt it from the rpm via
command line. Restarted. Rebuilt the vboxdrv via "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv
setup" (this time it works). Started the service with
"/etc/init.d/vboxdrv start". Then made it permanent on reboot with
"insserv vboxdrv"

What ever happened to the days of not having to reboot Linux? ;)

You didn't really need to reboot, you only had to follow what was
suggested, viz unloading the old vboxdrv module and rerunning setup.

modprobe -r vboxdrv
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

inserv wasn't needed either, it would have already been activated for

Problem was I couldn't modprobe -r vboxdrv. It would fail out on
everything. Modprobes, /etc/init.d/vboxdrv start, stop, etc. It was
attempting to unload something that wasn't loaded.

That's normally not a problem. If the modules which the script
wants to unload aren't loaded, the script proceeds normally.
Happens all the time to me after compiling and booting a new
kernel for which the vboxdrv module hasn't been recompiled yet.

So there must have been some other problem.

I'm checking back in after being away for a couple of months and I missed the 3.1 release. I can't seem to find any info on what's new in 3.1 and also what the upgrade path should be. So, is the recommended path for upgrading from v 2.1.2 to go directly to 3.1 or do I need to go to 3.0.13 first?

2.1.2 to 3.2 upgrade issues
I've recently been making (repeated) attempts to upgrade to 3.2 from 2.1.2.  'Repeated' because I keep having to restore the website back to 2.1.2 while I go and try and figure out what's going wrong. I've done this on 2 installations of DNN both running on WebHost4Life.  (and incidentally, my upgrades on my home server worked fine) My procedure: delete the old bin, and root files.  Upload new bin and root files (including web.config prepped for database login and autoupdate to false).  Visit the install.asp?mode=install.  Everything _appears_ to proceed...

Never done upgrade before. Have a 2.1.2 site w/many custom (purchased) modules, some of which are no longer supported. Don't see *any* info in 3.1 install docs for 2.1.2 upgrade?
Hey folks: I'm about to try something very scary, and I've spent the last 5 or so hours reading DNN 3.1 docs and doing searches here (sure which the search worked better, like allowed sort by date??).  Anyway, I don't see *any* info on updating a 2.1.2 site to a 3.1 site.  The only examples all have machine key stuff and other stuff that's not an issue (or is it?) w/2.1.2 Here's the situation: 1 I have localhost access to the site via remote desktop 2. I have disconnected backed up data and log files and reconnected 3. I have made a copy of the virtual folder. No...

Upgrade 1.0.10 to 2.1.2
I am preparing to upgrade a site from DNN 1.0.10 to 2.1.2 The site is hosted on a remote server using a SQL database and when I originally installed the 1.0.10 version I did a search/replace on all of the database install scripts - removing [dbo]. and dbo. This seemed to be the only way that DNN would install smoothly. When I view the remote database using enterprise manager it seems that the tables and stored procedures are owned by either my user 'pkoanui' or 'dbo' I foresee this being a problem when upgrading to 2.1.2. I have since performed fresh installs of other DNN 2.1.2 sit...
